Annabelle Lea’s Fresh 48

IMG_9663.jpg

Introducing my sweet niece, Annabelle Lea!  She was born 2/3/2017 weighing just an ounce shy of ten pounds.  It took me three kids to realize how priceless these fresh newborn images really are, so I wanted to make sure we got her on camera within the first 48 hours.  They start change like crazy after that! We all agreed little Annabelle is pretty much a clone of her older sister Audrey.  She’s a contented little bundle of bliss with a headful of dark hair!  We weren’t able to fit the whole family in this session because mom giving birth makes …

While Ashley was feeding the babe and Eric was answering the door, Jacoby snuck into the pantry and found some flour to play in. If you have a 2 year old, you know this is so classic. We couldn’t help but snap …

Introducing Baby Bennett

2016-07-27_0007.jpg

There is nothing like those first few weeks of new motherhood. It is an exciting time, so full of love and wonder. It’s also so vulnerable and tender. There is an awakening of a depth of love in those days that makes you question everything you have ever known. It was so special to be able to get to glimpse some of these moments for the Sadoma family. Like we expected, Christy transitioned from expectant mother to full blown mama in such a beautiful way. The way she smiles at Bennett shows the tenderness in spirit.  And the pride from …
